I have been coming to the Masters Swim class for a few years. Elena has helped to improve my stroke technique so that I feel confident swimming all strokes. This year I completed my first open water swim, the 2.1 mile Ponte to LaPointe swim in Bayfield, WI. The Masters Class really helped me to be successful in this race. It has been great to work with such a wonderful coach!
